Author Notes

The original French 75 (invented circa WWI) had a ton of gin in it. It supposedly got its name because drinking one felt like getting shelling in the gut with a french 75MM field gun. The 75b has less gin, a little elderflower liqueur and of course, some cold-pressed blue goodness. The perfect blend of aromatic, effervescent, sweet and tart. This one feels more like catching 75 big fluffy snowflakes on your tongue...with a lot less effort. Words and recipe by Eric Bemis, aka The Pour Farmer (pourfarmer.com) —Bow Hill Blueberries
